Since the syllabus is same as the standard syllabus of 11th std and 12th std, candidates can follow the same books. You can see a lot of books available in the market for this exam. It is important to select the best and the most standard books for reference. Some of the standard books recommended for this exam are

  • MHT CET engineering entrance exam published by Editorial Compilation
  • Bapat’s book on MHT CET Physics (Marvel) written for Class XII Science
  • Physics (Volume I and II) written by H.C.Verma
  • MHT CET – Mathematics (Marvel) For XII Science written by Hemant G.Ainapure
  • MHT CET – Chemistry (Marvel) For XII Science written by Mayur Mehta, Chitra Joshi, Rekha Diwekar.

Apart from the above-mentioned books, students can also refer the NCERT books. It is suggested to read a particular topic from a single source rather than a number of books. In addition to reading the book, make sure to take notes so that you can utilize it for revision. These notes should be made with proper clarity. Besides reading the books, try to get some question banks with solved answers. This would make aid in better preparation.

For those topics which need more explanation, you can also refer various sources on the internet. There are a number of videos available which bring more clarity on many difficult concepts. But students should not waste their name in searching for the concepts. Rather, they should use internet sources only for some difficult concepts.
